You can define rules to automatically select instances for backup. Use this dialog box to define or edit rules for automatic instance selection. You can define a single rule or a group of rules.

Options

You can use the following options for each rule:

  • (Browse)

    Select this option to select objects such as hosts or storage. Click to browse the inventory and select the required object. 

  • Click this button to add more rules to the rule group

  • Click this button to delete a rule from the rule group.

Operators

Use the following operators when defining rules:

  • Equals - Select this operator to include instances.
  • Does Not Equal - Select this operator to exclude instances. You can use this operator only when you are defining more than one rule.

Multiple Rules

When you are defining multiple rules, you can choose how to combine the rules:

  • Match <all> of the following rules

    This option is selected by default when you are defining multiple rules. By default, the AND condition is applied to all rules in the Rule Group.

    Select this option to apply the OR condition to all rules in the Rule Group.

Rules

You can select the following types of objects to define rules:
